Marbach has strengthened the team in its Indiana subsidiary since autumn 2018. With Phil Driskill, Marbach has gained an industry insider with a wide range of experience in the world of thermoforming.
Driskill has worked for Landis Plastics and OMV Machinery. He has also been responsible for research and development at Berry Global. He possesses deep knowledge in article design, tool making and plastic processing. And in his various positions, Driskill has always been involved in the business development of each company.
Hubert Kittelmann, Sales Manager Marbach Werkzeugbau: "Phil has always been personally involved with customers and suppliers from all over the world. For us he is the perfect man to implement our ambitious plans for North America. Few know the needs of our customers better than he does. And by the way: Phil also knows Marbach very well. When Marbach founded the US plant in Elkhart 25 years ago he was part of the original US crew, he thus helped create the foundation for our long lasting success story."
Marbach recently launched a new system under the name Embossing Register System IV. This allows embossing plates to be set up quickly and easily on embossing dies. With the Marbach system, users can save time when setting up the embossing dies and thus reduce machine downtimes.
Marbach has made a successful start to the new year with its Marbach Academy. In the first quarter of 2019, there were training courses on the subjects of paperboard and cigarette packaging as well as several individual training courses for customers.
Our US location in Charlotte is developing very positively. Following the start of production in 2012, Marbach America has grown into a stable revenue generator within the globally active Marbach Group. In order to be able to serve its customers even better, Marbach America has invested in a laser system of the latest generation. In March 2019 a laser system of the type mlas|compact-2 was installed at Marbach America.
Marbach is on course for expansion. After Marbach has founded subsidiaries in the USA, Malaysia, China and Mexico in the recent years, a second location in the USA will follow this summer. Since 2012 Marbach is already represented with a production site in Charlotte, North Carolina.
